ALL IN ONE: The multiple innovation-award-winning Fischer LP360™ connector is: a miniaturized active device AND fastening mechanism AND electrical signal & power connection.
This rugged, low-profile connector was extended in 2019 into a versatile technology platform that serves as an enabler for wearables and networked IoT/IoH ecosystems.
Its unique combination of patent-pending and innovative features (non-magnetic 360° mating, membrane-sealed and flat contact surface with water-, dust- and sand-proofing) forms a breakthrough plug & use technology that benefits both engineers and end-users.
Multiple configurability options facilitate application design, with the panel plug being extended into multifunctional wearables (biometric sensors, comms, GPS, lights, etc.) that quickly snap onto the cabled receptacle integrated into flexible structures like ready-to-use smart PPE vests serving as interconnected hubs within work teams and remote monitoring centers. Workers in the field benefit from lightweight gear with no cable clutter, fast and intuitive setup, ease of use and cleaning, reliable connectivity and fast data transfer for enhanced safety and performance.
